    [FONT=&amp]Hard to believe, but it’s actually 20 years since Duke Nukem II was first released. The iOS version of the classic Duke Nukem 3D proved to be incredibly popular, so it’s no surprise that the side-scrolling sequel to the original Duke Nukem is now finally coming to iOS, courtesy of Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms. iDownload Blog says that the iOS remake will feature all 32 levels from the original game, but with the enhancement of multitouch controls, a new soundtrack, improved graphics, online leaderboards, and much more. The game will be released sometime in April, and will cost $1.99. As ever with Duke Nukem, the plot, which is set in “futuristic†1998, revolves around aliens, who this time around have kidnapped Duke Nukem, and are trying to use his brain to dominate earth. It’s up to you and Duke to save the planet, in an arcady, side-scrolling kind of way. No idea of the exact release date, but look for this in April. [/FONT]

    It came out around the time Commander Keen came out. That was a fun game too.

    It was a fun side scroller, during the levels, but there was a top down view as you ran from one level to the next
